The Central Library is normally open 24 hours and contains numerous study spaces for quiet or collaborative study. Meet a research coach in the Academic Plaza or create something new in the FabLab. Our Special Collections on the 6th floor holds more than 1,500 archives and manuscript collections, primarily in Texas history, cartography, and the U.S.-Mexico War of 1846-48. When you need a break, visit the Market or Einstein Bros. Bagels for a snack. See Central Library Services Floor by Floor.
